Bring Home the Sweetness, Without the Calories!

Bring Home the Sweetness, Without the Calories!

  • KCAC’s Adorable, Adoptable Pet of the Week is written by Tecla Metzel of Kane County Animal Control.

Want to bring home some sweetness to the family mix without upping your caloric intake?



Then you might be the perfect person to adopt Sugar, this week’s Kane County Animal Control Pet of the Week.

Sugar is as sweet as her name suggests. Arriving at KCAC as a stray, the staff was able to make contact with her owner. Unfortunately, her family was not able to reclaim her.

A large girl at a svelte 63 pounds, this 2-year old thinks she’s a lap dog! She loves to be around people and other dogs. Her high energy requires a family that is willing to give her the exercise she needs to tire her out, as well as keep her mind stimulated with continued training. She is potty trained and very eager to learn more tricks.

Sweet little Sugar is looking for that forever family that will play with her, take her for long walks and snuggle the night away with her at the end of every day.

Update on Kenya



Kenya, the Boston Terrier/pit bull mix, went to her forever family two weeks ago. We’ll miss you, baby girl, but we are so happy for you. You deserve it.

Powder, one of our older residents in the cat room, also was adopted by his forever family a couple of weeks ago. Congratulations, Powder!

Mittens is still quietly waiting for someone to adopt him.

Also, Lionel, the potty trained, now neutered, pot-bellied pig, is still available for adoption. His fee is $25.
